In honor of UCLA’s second blowout win this season over “Dunk City” USC, we thought it would be a good time to revisit some of “Dunk City” Enfield’s escapades this season.
After the first blowout, we found this statement from the L.A. Times interesting (and true) – about USC basketball coach Andy “Dunk City” Enfield after his devastating and humiliating loss to the UCLA Bruins:
Deflecting tactic – Maybe it is the sign of a young coach, but Enfield took little of the blame for the loss and seemed to give most of it to his players.

Andy “The Bard” Enfield On The First Loss To UCLA:
Despite all the heated talk these days about the USC-UCLA rivalry, USC coach Andy Enfield said it didn’t feel any more difficult at Pauley Pavilion on Sunday than some a lot of tough road environments.
“The UCLA and USC rivalry has been around for decades but as soon as the ball is tipped, it’s just another basketball game and you have to play,” Enfield said.
We throw up 107 points on the guy and he says it is just another game. Happens all the time, right Andy? LOLOLOLOL
Selected Quotes From Andy “Rocket Scientist” Enfield During The Season
“Tim Floyd shows up every day at work and realizes he lives in El Paso, Texas. And he’s pissed off that he didn’t get the USC job two months ago.”
“I don’t worry about [UCLA]. I’ve made it to one Sweet Sixteen in two years [as a head coach], and [Steve Alford has] made it to one Sweet Sixteen in 18 years [as a head coach].”
“We play up-tempo basketball here (USC). If you want to play slow, go to UCLA.” (UCLA then promptly dropped 107 points on our young “Mr. Up-Tempo Dunk City”).
Strange And Odd Enfield Story Of The Season
At the Battle 4 Atlantis college basketball tournament in the Bahamas, USC’s Andy “The Brawler” Enfield and UTEP’s coach Tim Floyd had a mature and intellectual meeting of the minds.
According to reports from a reception, Floyd was in the middle of a friendly conversation with the tournament’s director, Lea Miller, when Enfield interrupted and began a heated confrontation. Following Enfield into the confrontation were Enfield’s wife and his three young assistants who immediately surrounded Floyd on all sides. Evidently feeling threatened by the presumed intimidation tactics of Enfield’s gang of five, the 59 year old Floyd was heard saying “Do you want to kick my ass?”
As Floyd’s loyal assistant Bob Cantu tried to protect his head coach, Enfield’s assistant Tony Bland rushed at Cantu, and Enfield’s other assistant Jason Hart had to be restrained as well.
Cantu said “I saw three USC assistants surround my head coach with Andy and his wife, so I walked up and said, ‘Why are we arguing about a kid who signed a letter of intent in November,’ and after that two of his assistants came after me and rushed me. It really is completely unprofessional and unfortunate. It caught me completely off guard.”
